    Hi Charles,

    the film is made in a German coating factory.
    Untill some months ago, the 25ASA version was made by a Croation company.

    Kind regards,
    Geert

    I'm a bit tired of playing this game... Why not tell us what it is? This new economy and stuff with communities where even businesses come is supposed to be about being open and honest, isn't it?
    I currently use Adox (efke) 100 at 18x24 cm and 4x5 inch. Is this the same?

    Well,

    it's not really a game. The manufacturer is not very keen in telling where the film is actually made. With a little bit of business intelligence, you can easily understand why.

    Great, Geert!

    I'll be ordering some as soon as I get the bellows patched up (or replaced - it's an original ca. 1900 camera with original bellows).

    And I'll want a special 4x5" ground glass too, as soon as I get around to measuring it.

    Geert do you have a source for larger sheet lith film? Or even X-ray?

    Believe it or not, there is a political dimension to the obscure art of film production, coating and marketing.

    Frankly I don't give a monkey's toss where the film is produced, EU or not. No offence, but it's as nauseating as hearing whether Leica lenses are produced in Canada or Germany; Rollei lenses in Singapore or Japan or Germany; Carl Zeiss lenses in Germany AE version or Japanese MM versions,; whether Polaroid Type 55 is really Panatomic X from 50 years ago; whether... in this age of globalisation... AArgh. I'm going to have a wobbly. Sorry.

    As Sandeha says, it's gorgeous in Rodinal. The emulsion is traditional; high quality tonal rendition and ultra-fine grain (NP15). If Geert can get it in whole plate format for export for enthusiasts, then why not support Wephota? It's not like it's some large Japanese digital corporation like Nokia behind it.

    Well. I suppose you misunderstood me quite a bit. I would like to order from sheetfilm.be. Exactly the same price as efke100 from fotoimpex but a shopping cart system that is easier to use. But if I need to test the film and don't know what I will get, it is better to stick with efke, isn't it?

    Nokia a Japanese company? That'll be shocking news to the good people of Finland.
